Applications sought for Access and Habitat Program grants
SALEM - Applications are currently being accepted for Access and Habitat
Program grants for projects that provide public hunting access to
private lands, improve public hunting access to public lands, or enhance
wildlife habitat. The application deadline is Dec. 31, 2005.
The A&H Program was created by the Oregon Legislature in 1993 to foster
greater cooperation between hunters and private landowners and is funded
by a $2 surcharge on hunting licenses. Funds raised by the program are
distributed through grants to private landowners, timber and agriculture
corporations, sportsmen/conservation groups, natural resource agencies
and others for projects designed to improve wildlife habitat and/or
increase public hunting access.
Typical projects funded by the Access and Habitat Program include
wildlife forage seeding, water development, riparian protection, noxious
weed control, meadow fertilization, wetland restoration, public hunting
leases, law enforcement patrols, travel management areas and increased
access to public lands that are "land-locked" by private land.
Over the last two years, the Access and Habitat Program has awarded more
than $1 million in funding for qualifying projects throughout Oregon.
These projects have improved more than 15,000 acres of wildlife habitat
and provided 3.5 million acres of public hunting access.
